Sen. Flake Deciding Vote On New Obamacare Repeal Effort?

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake (R) - up for re-election next year, not coincidentally - is in the glare of the national spotlight today as the possible deciding vote on the latest Senate effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Politico splashed his photo on their lead story this morning (below)

"I'm still digesting it," the Senator told reporters this morning after the new version was released. "I'll be doing that for awhile," he added.

Flake is facing mounting pressure from both his right and his left. Texas Senator Ted Cruz singled him out for praise this morning on KFYI this morning, after Flake told the station that he would be supporting Cruz' amendment permitting non-compliant plans to be sold alongside Obamacare-compliant health insurance policies.
